Unofficial Notes from 6:00 am Speech


I'm sure that those of you who are Blessed and have families are concerned and thinking what can I leave to my family? Before we talk about a providential level of restoration, we have to face this question on the personal level. I am sure that you have given it deep thought. You want to leave something for your children greater than just personal joy and achievement. In this world many people do not even believe in having families nor do they see the significance of it. So for us this is a great challenge this is the task we face.


If something is given on this earth, there is a force of life contained within it. We must start with a seed, but we need some content to follow to bring about the ideal, so let's discuss this today.

Historically, mankind longed for an ideal all throughout time. Even now people are not satisfied with what they have, but are longing for more. Why do they feel that way? Because man fell from grace and departed from Heavenly Fathers ideal. Man was to fulfill God's ideal. There should have been an inseparable bond, that kind of relationship with God. So fallen mankind still longs for this, a return to the ideal. No matter what we have we will always lack something inside unless we realize that God is alive and we believe in a substantial relationship with Him. Our longing and searching ends from that moment. We need to ask ourselves, "Am I still longing and searching?" If we are it means that we have nothing to give to our children.


Throughout history man has betrayed God and has taken Gods name in vain. Atheism exists as well as many other Godless-isms, but Heavenly Father has never changed. His desire to save mankind has never changed. We believe that perfection is a feeling of being almost machine-like, automated, with no life. That is our predominant thinking. Through history man has cursed God, but God never gave up loving mankind. There was never even one moment of hesitation on His part. He has invested everything, that is the example of a truly perfected being.


In order for you to give something to your children- the only way that they will not wander is if they see their parents living that same way. That is the only way to set them free. If you do not measure up to the standard of God, you cannot succeed. The love you feel for your children will last forever, it will never go away. From the first moment you hold your child until the time it dies and goes back to the earth, your love for it will never end.


The first thing we have to do is to know ourselves. We have to believe that we have inherited the historical failures. We must believe in Heavenly Fathers heart of love and restoration, that Heavenly Father is trying to save mankind and bring us back to the origin. You already know how this can be accomplished. God alone cannot accomplish this, but you man and woman can bring God's ideal to fruition. We have inherited this responsibility because it has gone on unfulfilled. We need to have the love and consciousness to take responsibility. We need to say " I will not leave this burden to my children, but I will take on this great task." That is the only way to bring about the ideal of True Father.


If 1,000 people in the New York area gave just one hour a week to the church that would be 52,000 hours a year, or if each one gave ten hours a week, that is 520,000 man hours in one year! You might say that we lack power or time, but in Heavenly Father's eyes that is not true. You are being irresponsible. Your responsibility is to bring an end to this suffering. We must restore America, Korea, Japan and the world. You have to take initiative, just as Father has done all throughout his life. That is why Father is here, you believe in that.


People in the past sacrificed everything looking for the truth and for an ideal, but we are the ones who are here. We say we have found the truth, that this is the truth. Our longing and searching ends here! You must give! Once you have something you must give!


What does principle tell you? How does give and take work? Did you really think about that? If you believe you have found something, then give back for the sake of true love. You have not been giving, that's why nothing is happening. You are still selfish, struggling within yourself. Time will not wait for you to grow up. We must meet heaven's timetable! Do not expect God to wait for you, that is putting your dominion over God! I am saying this very strongly, but take my word, you must know this.


Why did Father and Mother bless you? So you can settle down with your family and claim your place in this world? We want to cleanse this world of all satanic thoughts and culture. We are here to bring the realization of the Heavenly Kingdom on this earth, but we have not reached that point yet. Father has a providential viewpoint, he has laid the global foundation. He made the global foundation with his own hands because man failed to receive the True Parents. His entire historical foundation that had been won with so much effort went "poof", it vanished, because the crucial, key players, mankind, failed to realize what heaven was saying to them.


Father has succeeded. Father has succeeded in taking responsibility for our failures. How does individual perfection come about? Centering on Heavenly Father your mind and body must unite and become one. That perfected being (a man) grows to unite with a woman, and then what do you have? Children. A substantiation of your love. They are crawling, walking, living love. How do you expect to bring an ideal nation and tribe? Why is the second generation so important? They are the product of love. What is the Blessing? It is grafting onto True Parents root, separating from Satan's lineage. The second generation is a purified version of you, your purified lineage. Then those purified children from all walks of life will unite that will establish the ideal tribe. Based upon that the ideal nation comes about.


All the people blessed this time symbolize the second generation. That blessing was made upon recognition of a symbolic foundation. On that foundation Father blessed the seventy two couples who represent the purified tribe. They are the fruit of our labor, the first generation. You cannot establish the national foundation without preparing the tribal level and the family level first. You must go step by step, this is a process.


People from all over the world have come and received the blessing and love from True Parents. Some of the first generation have sacrificed for them. After the blessing of 6,000 couples Father said this is the time for tribal messiahship. How can you do that without following the true model? Is 99% good enough to give? No! Father wants you to follow principle. We have already told him many times that we understand, that he does not need to tell us anymore.


Do not blame God and True Parents. You haven't even really tried living this way yet and still you blame someone. You just sit there and criticize with no real idea of what is happening, is that the attitude of a rational person? If any of you have complained in the past this is what you have been doing. Look at yourself first. Ask yourself "Am I a true person, can I criticize?" God is a true being. He went first. Mankind betrayed Him and cursed Him, but He went His course, taking in all the hardship, pain and tears. That is your model, nothing else.


My models are Heavenly Father and True Parents. If you want to be an individual, then be that kind of individual. My model does not exist in Hollywood, or in the American government or in the history books. You do not even know who you follow or embody. How do you expect to change the environment of America or even your own household?
